And, through his meticulous work on the Candela and ‘Swiss Legacy’ models, Joe has become a wonderful ambassador for the department and the University.” Maria Garlock, added, “Without Joe’s creativity and innovation for designing teaching labs and building models, our labs and exhibitions would not be as successful as they are.”
